Regine Reymond
Regine Reymond – alternative practitioner, pharmaceutical representative, and co-owner of the company “easinject” – is an expert in the area of esthetic lip treatment with hyaluronic acid fillers and, since 2001, an experienced user of minimally invasive injection techniques. Since then, she has also organized or led more than 150 workshops, seminars, and symposia on the topic of filler techniques.

Dr. med. Christian Köhler
Dr Christian Köhler, MD – an expert in esthetic surgery, non-surgical techniques, and esthetic laser treatments – has, for more than 10 years, headed up the Prevention Center in Zürich, Zug and Schaan, Switzerland. He has more than 18 years of experience in general, vascular, reconstructive, and plastic surgery and to date has performed more than 50,000 nonsurgical treatments with botulinum toxin and fillers.

In routine daily practice, treating the lips presents a challenge even for the experienced therapist. The patient’s individual requirements, the huge range of products and preparations on offer as well as the specific circumstances encountered with previously treated lips all require the attending physician to have a profound, expert knowledge of anatomy, of product properties, and of the various techniques with the potential risks associated with them.

In this book, all the relevant aspects of case history, anatomy, treatment with hyaluronic acid fillers, and injection techniques with their risks are presented in a way that is easy to follow and understand. The content is completed by case examples, numerous practice tips, and additional commercial and product-specific advisory notes. The aim of the authors is to provide both seasoned and less experienced therapists with a manual and an aid to treatment, equipping them with all the key information needed to independently prepare, perform, and optimize lip treatments in esthetic medicine. The book also contains practical videos that visually demonstrate many of the techniques described, accessed via QR codes.
